How far does the tank have to move and will you be able to take it down, move it
and set it back up same day?
Also, in anticipation, you might want to start heavy water changes especially if
you don't do a lot or do very small water changes normally. If you change 1/2 of
the tank water every other day or so, but the time you move your fish will be
used to "new" water allowing you to use a LOT of new water at the new location
so you don't shock the fish. This will save you from trying to transport a lot
of old tank water with you when you move.
